Background

Opal Pro gives every text a noble character. The typeface has got long ascenders that rise clearly above the capital letters and a low x-height. Opal’s letters sport inktraps at stroke junctions, which on the one hand creates a cutout feeling. On the other hand it strengthens this image in larger point sizes even further. In total, the letterforms have clear emphasis on their verticals and horizontals; they do not fear the weight on their curves. In addition to the Italic and the bold, the Opal type family includes a script face, whose letters are includes connections, similar to handwriting. On top of that the typeface possesses swash letters for italic and script, small caps, many ligatures and borders & ornaments.

With a little bit of care, designers will be able to create the finest of traditional, elegant work with this family.
